Making Curriculum Pop

I've known about this sports and math curricula for some time, although I can't say I've had a chance to check the materials out. I pasted the catalogue info below they have student and teacher editions for all sports. If anyone uses them or knows stuff about them please paste your information below.

BTW - if you're really interested in Pop Culture in Mathematics check out the old Mindblue Math and PC wiki (I'm hoping to migrate this to the Ning when they make wiki software available) as well as MC Popper Peter Appelbaum's Facebook group "Math in School is Art for Social Change."

For those of you who don't know Dr. Appelbaum- he literally wrote the book on popular culture and mathematics - Popular Culture, Educational Discourse, and Mathematics.

I also heard MC POPPER Karl Boyno read his newest book Embracing Mathematics this summer and told me it was a great read.

Anyway, sports and math - enjoy:

Jessica, thanks for the review! We seem to have so many cool and plugged in people round here - I'm certainly hoping some of the young teachers I work with give it a gander. If you have a hot minute and could look for the AP article that would be a great hyperlink!
